Protecting a new and original creative work means recognizing the work that gave it life and protect the benefits reserved for its author.
What is copyright
Copyright refers to a framework of provisions that protect new and original creative works. These creative works include literary, musical, architectural, theatrical and cinematographic works as well as, for example, software – indicated as “computer programmes” – and databases, which are considered intellectual works.
Why protect copyright
Copyright is created from the moment that the author creates an original creative work: compared with patents, trademarks and designs, copyright does not necessarily require a filing or registration procedure in order to formally confirm its existence and the relative scope of protection. When a creative work is filed, the goal is often to establish a firm date in respect of other subsequent works and to indicate paternity, at least alleged.
Copyright protection therefore means recognising the hard work that goes into producing a creative work and protecting the benefits that the author may obtain from its use.
